Range Description

This species has a curious distribution. It is found in the Ethiopian and Tanzanian highlands. It is widespread and common in the Ethiopian highlands above 2,000 m and can be very common inside Addis Ababa (T.B. Larsen pers. obs.). However, the subspecies described from Tanzania is apparently extremely rare. This subspecies is described from the northeastern highlands of Tanzania (Mount Meru; Oldeani-Ngorongoro Highlands) in what are essentially just two locations (D'Abrera 1997). Both subspecies have only been recorded from above 2,000 m.
